Working out search forms
Posted by mholmes on 04 Dec 2006 in Activity log
In previous discussion, we planned a search system which would allow people to search on actual forms in the database, or using a simplified ascii representation which would make it easy to avoid struggling with diacritics. I'm now in the process of trying to create a taxonomy of glyphs and glyph-combos which may appear in the db, and figure out how to map them to simpler forms. This is my preliminary list, based on Ewa's handwritten note, in Unicode (so it may not appear correctly on the blog!):
Nxaʔamxcín Alphabetical Order:
